good to see that you chose rebuild it instead of parting it out.

I toyed with the idea of buying Lamard's car when he was thinking of selling. Pretty sure the bear cub died so the All-Trac could live!

Polished my RC intercooler. Still needs a bit of work, but it'll do for now.

I forgot to snap pics of: 1.4mm TTE head gasket, ATS CT27 turbo, NGK spark plug wires, NGK Iridium spark plugs, new Toyota distributor rotor & cap, Greddy Type RS BOV, new Toyota speedometer cable, ST205 heat exchanger, pump and lines, H&R 25mm rear wheel spacers, Toyota turbo gasket kit, HFH, HFHOE, TWM short shifter, ARP flywheel bolts, extended clutch slave cylinder pushrod...might still be forgetting something.

Anyways, more pics of parts. :D

This is the car now as it sits in the shop. Can't really see the rain guards all too well, I'll have to snap pics next visit. Still has the winter tires on, wasn't really expecting it to be summer before I get the car back. Good thing Jon took the car for a bath before I took this pic. However, he forgot to mention that the hood was off the hinges as I tried to pop it to take an engine bay shot. No damage done, just gave me a little scare.

Also got this fuel system from tjdouble07. It includes:

Modified stock fuel rail bored to 8mm and twin/dual fed

All Earl's Plumbing SS lines and swivel fittings

Almost new fuel filter with metric to -AN adapter to run SS lines

4 800cc SARD side feed injectors

Walbro 255lph fuel pump

Probably just gonna use the fuel pump for now, the rest with round 2 of mods. :)

Suspension was actually next on my list. Kinda disappointed that Teins went up in price. :doh: Also would like a C-One rear swaybar and a J-Speed front tower brace. Conrad at ACE Engineering mentioned fabbing up a brace similar to the J-Speed so we'll see what happens. After that I would like to address the stock brakes. I picked up the rear visor on eBay. First time I've seen it for sale, used Buy It Now and snatched it up. :wink:

I just want to comment - black 'trac = shear sexiness. Great recovery on the car.

'92 'trac - Demon - currently in need of some reconstructive surgery.

Thanks for the comments. I'll snap some more fuel system pics when I check out the car. Hopefully it should be done in the next week or two.
